If I were reviewing this purely on food it would be a 4 or 5. If were based purely on the atmosphere it would be a 1 or 2. First and foremost for those who have never been, the Dixie Chicken is predominantly a burger joint so don't be fooled by the name. The burgers were great. Well prepared, plump and juicy full of flavor and reasonably priced for the amount you receive. The place is a college hang out so expect it to be jam packed on weekends and particularly after A&M home football games. I would definitely recommend going once if for no other reason to say you have. As for the atomosphere, it is an older, hole in the wall, college town type place and my biggest problem is that it smelled like a frat house on Sunday morning. The stench of dried beer was overwhelming and we were there early enough in the afternoon that it should not have been that bad. I am not sure I would ever go back but overall I am glad I did ONCE.
